Today we listen to final mixing tweaks so we can move onto the mastering stage. Also, last night we figured out our opener for our 2nd album release party. Yay! We have a few shows coming up this month. We’ll be at BC Supports Music Education! A Concert In Honor of Senator Tommy Banks on Oct 22nd at Vancouver FanClub doing a 20 min set with our full band among other awesome artists such as: Pacifika, Jim Byrnes, The Matinee and Champagne Republic with hosts Vicki Gabereau and Terry David Mulligan. We’re really excited about this show also because it is in support of BC music education programs and honours a Canadian music legend. We also perform at Central Bistro again in Vancouver on Oct 26th 7pm-11pm with our full band. So much to look forward to…
This week Rob and I have been practising for our upcoming gigs. As well as playing in Sister Says Rob also plays music with indie singer and songwriter Candace Curr. He’ll be performing with her at Merge this Saturday in Vancouver and I’ll be singing back-up harmonies. We’re looking forward to it! Candace is opening for awesome artists folk singer-songwriter Nick Sherman and classical grunge rocker Kristi Lane Sinclair.
Mastering!! Rob and I had a meeting with CPS mastering about mastering our album. We’re doing a final listen over our mixed tracks now and are making the final decisions about all of the mixes….I’m SO excited.
We had an awesome time at the Salish Sea Summer event. It was a beautiful day. The event supports a great cause and had an awesome line-up. Rob also performed with Candace and I sang a few back-ups/did a duet. Great day!
Our second recording is coming along. We’ve been listening to mixes and making final decisions on batches of tracks and also going over artwork proofs. This week Rob pointed out to me that Sister Says has now reached number 4 on the National Aboriginal (radio) Music Countdown. So cool! Thank you listeners for requesting to hear us:) Rob and I and friends enjoyed seeing The Boom Booms, BESTiE, and The New Royales…among other awesome bands play at East Van Summer Jam a few weekends ago. We can’t wait for the next one. We also caught up with some of our Aboriginal Music Program Camp friends Leonard Sumner and Candace Curr for dinner and saw Murray Porter and Leela Gilday at The Railway Club. On Tuesday, the 15th, Leonard, Candace, Rob and I joined a bunch of other artists and musicians for a music jam at SoundHouse Studio. We hope to keep the jam an ongoing thing. It’s always so great to meet new musicians and hang out with creative friends.
